DeMers Avenue will be opening Monday, but more construction remains in downtown Grand Forks.
Construction on DeMers Avenue in downtown Grand Forks will be moving to its second phase starting on Monday, Aug. 26, the city said in a press release. Phase two of the project will be the reconstruction from Third Street to the Sorlie Bridge and work on the sidewalks along the road.
During this phase of construction, two-way traffic will be open on DeMers Avenue from Sixth Street to Third Street. A temporary traffic signal will be at the intersection of DeMers Avenue and Fifth Street.
There will not be a signal at the intersection of Fourth Street and DeMers. Traffic on DeMers at this intersection can travel through or turn right onto Fourth Street. Traffic on Fourth Street at this intersection will only be able to turn right onto DeMers and will not be allowed to travel through or turn left.
Third Street will be closed at the intersection with DeMers Avenue.
Traffic from Third Street to the Sorlie Bridge will only be allowed to travel in one direction at a time and traffic will be metered by a temporary signal on each side of the construction zone.
Parking will not be allowed on DeMers Avenue from Sixth Street to the Sorlie Bridge during this phase of the project.
The transition to phase two of this project will take most of the day on Monday.
